ON THE BACK BURNER

May 28

I now have both a memory foam mattress and the bed frame. The mattress , I may have said, came in a box as tall as I am. Maybe as wide. Getting the mattress out of the box was a struggle. I had to cut the  box off. I wasn’t strong  enough to pull it  out as was suggested in the instructions. Once out of the box, it took several sighs of air and puffed right up. It was like when you use packing cubes when you are packing a suitcase. Today the bed arrived. In a box, a very sturdy box. This box came to my chin. I wrestled it down my hallway and into the guest bedroom. I was already glowing. I don’t sweat. I glow. The box was packed to perfection.Every single  item was packed with precision.I have always been fascinated with the design of boxes. In the box, I had 7 larger pieces that comprised the head, foot and 3 support  pieces and 24 cross pieces.Add 60 little screws and bolts,plus a package that said extra screws, and a page of picture instructions that made no sense to me. Just go for it is my preferred method. So I did. It was a challenge working as a single set of hands.   I used a chair for a prop and the wall for a brace. Now I was really in a sweat. The glow left and it was pure sweet. I then had to wiggle the mattress out of the plastic wrap and voila , I have a double bed in the guest room. When I stretch out on the bed to see how it felt, I could hear my vertebrae popping back in place. I may spend the night here. I should give it a seal of approval.
